First a Full Moon with a partial eclipse on August 7
then the Lion’s Gateway opens up on August 8! Now, I’m kind of a science geek, so I like to know just what all this stuff means. I’m also fascinated with astrology and astronomy so I had to research some of these terms and locations. (thank you, Google and Wikipedia!)
Every year on August 8th there is a cosmic alignment called “the Lion’s Gateway.” The Lion’s Gate is when Earth aligns with the Galactic Center, (27 degrees Sagittarius) and the star Sirius, opening a cosmic portal between the physical and spiritual realms. It’s called the Lions Gate because it occurs in the astrological sign of Leo (the Lion). Leo as a Zodiac Sign is associated with the heart center and represents the individualized expression of the Divine.
When this direct alignment with the Galactic Center happens, (as can be seen astrologically) there is an intense surge of light which awakens DNA, activates the human energy field and transmits high vibrational frequencies and codes of awakening. Additionally, when the Sun is conjunct the star Sirius, the light codes of ascension, mastery and evolution from Sirius pour towards Earth as well, aligning yet another level of activation and opportunity for progression on the ascension path.
This Lions Gate energy is all about more fully awakening our unique Divine Light and embodying Divinity within our physical form.
Is it any wonder you’ve had trouble sleeping?!?
After meditation and asking for what we can know about these energies for our highest good, I drew four cards from the Wisdom of the Oracle deck and two cards from the Good Tarot. Both of these decks have been created by Colette Baron-Reid and illustrated by Jena DellaGrottaglia.
The anchor card is Between Worlds – how perfect is that?! You’ve finished in one world and you’re not quite ready to step out into the next. Admitting that you don’t really know what will happen is a big part of this transition. Seeds that have been planted in the past will start to take root and grow, but because we’re co-creating with Spirit, it may not come out just the way you’d thought it would. If you can adopt the mindset of “that’s interesting!” you’ll be able to appreciate the wonder as it unfolds.
Fork in the Road is where you’ll find yourself, with a choice to be made. It’s very important that you make the choice because by not choosing, you’re letting another person or circumstance make the choice for you. Accept responsibility for your own growth but don’t make yourself crazy; follow your intuition, that gut feeling, and do what feels right. Whichever you choose, it will be an enriching experience.
Trust your intuition and one of those paths you see before you will surely lead to Treasure Island, where you will see your previous work pay off in the material world. You’ll have good fortune all around, so remember to share whole-heartedly with those around you. Treasure shared multiplies magically.
The overall outcome of these Ascension energies will be to allow you the confidence, the grace and ease to speak your truth. Truth Be Told reminds us that now is the time to proclaim your truth out loud, to shine your light proudly, knowing that there are others who are searching for that very light. This is an important step in attracting and recognizing your tribe, those souls who get you and will support you in your journey, just as you recognize like-minded souls as you all gravitate together. Your vibe attracts your tribe!
The cards from the Good Tarot act to confirm and reinforce the message about these massive energies flowing through that portal from Sirius. Star is a Major Arcana card which addresses inspiration with this affirmation –
“I am hopeful and inspired by life right now, and everything that is happening points to a renewed sense of encouragement. After all the changes I have experienced, I’m starting to recognize the hope that comes with new beginnings.”
Fool is another Major Arcana card, the first one in a tarot deck, and sends us off on the journey with enthusiasm and this affirmation to keep us company –
“I know that a spiritual approach rarely appears logical and sometimes even seems impractical. However, when this card appears, I can take a risk and trust that with faith, anything is possible! The invisible realms will reveal each step along the way. I am meant to experience this regardless of where I travel. This is a time when I’m learning that I am a spiritual being having a human experience.”
We are moving into the next phase of our growth, our Ascension, and the decisions we find before us will lead us quickly onto our path to reach our goal, our purpose for being here. As we realize that our hard work is paying off in the material world, we’ll find the confidence and strength we need to speak our truth without fear of recrimination or persecution, shining our light to illuminate that path, not only for ourselves, but for the others that are also seeking their goals. We’re blessed and encouraged by our Angels and Guides, inspired to continue even when things don’t appear as we’d thought they would. Above all, we’re reminded to enjoy the journey!
